Spent a lot of money today bringing my Mazda B4000 up to date.
I just bought this truck ('99 with 100K on it) over the weekend. I had no idea what needed to be serviced (previous owner was selling it for his son who is out of the country) so I had all fluids and a few other things replaced on it, as recommended here on this forum a few days ago.
- Oil change (synthetic)
- Transmission flush
- Front and rear differentials
- Transfer case
- New fuel filter
- New serpentine belt (it was cracked pretty bad)
- IM and inspection.
Apparently, I only have about three months left on the rear breaks before they need to be replaced and it'll need a tune-up pretty soon as well.
Good grief, I just bought this truck and it's getting pretty expensive. Just about everything I did today was preventative maintenance to make sure the truck keeps running for a long time, so I don't feel too bad about spending the money.
